Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

October 17, 1956. 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — ^I transmit herewith for your con- 
sideration a proposed ordinance, in triplicate, 
amending Section 193-1.2 of the Municipal Code of 
Chicago relating to the consumption of alcoholic 
liquor upon the public ways of the City of Chicago. 

Under the proposed ordinance it will be unlawful 
for any person to consume any alcoholic liquor on 
any public way or in or about any motor vehicle 
upon a public way in the city, or to transport, 
carry or possess any alcoholic liquor upon any 
public way in the city except in the original pack- 
age and with the seal unbroken. The proposed or- 
dinance also provides for greater penalties for the 
violation thereof. 

The prevalence of consuming alcoholic liquor on 
the streets of Chicago has created many serious 
problems which in many ways reflect upon the 
good name of the City. By focusing public atten- 
tion upon such an ordinance we may be able to 
eliminate the misconduct of some of the public in 
this regard. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Richard J. Daley, 

Mayor.

al to the public safety, health, morals or welfare;

development areas in the locality will afford max- 
imum opportunity, consistent with the sound needs 
of the locality as a whole, for the redevelopment

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

November 8, 1956. 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On October 31, 1956, the executive 
budget of the City of Chicago for the calendar 
year of 1957 was filed with the City Clerk, to be 
submitted to you in accordance with Chapter 24, 
Section 22-1 of the Illinois Revised Statutes of 
1955. 

We can look back on the year 1956 with the 
knowledge that we have made a good start in 
meeting some of the pressing needs of our city. 

This progress could not have been possible with- 
out the cooperation of all the people of Chicago 
in making this city a better place in which to live 
and work. 

Although much was done, far more rem^ains to 
be done to improve the services of city government 
and to realize the vast potential our city has in 
making it the No. 1 metropolis of the nation. 

In my budget message last year, I stated the 
policy that I would follow in preparing the exec- 
utive budgets of the City of Chicago. I repeat, 
"I do not believe that the purpose of government 
is to provide vital services at their minimum . . . 
We must take first things first. We must concen- 
trate our efforts on city services which are essen- 
tial to keep the people of Chicago the healthiest, 
best protected and most prosperous in the nation." 

When I assumed office a year and a half ago, the 
city's housekeeping services, which are vitally im- 
portant to the families of Chicago, were below the 
standards which Chicago must have to be a healthy, 
thriving city. We needed more police, more fire- 
men, better refuse collection and street cleaning, 
faster action on our major public works, and a 
more vigorous, determined attack on the problem 
of revitalizing our neighborhoods. 

When I submitted the 1956 budget, I pledged 
more adequate city services, especially in those 
areas which directly affect the welfare of our citi- 
zens — police, fire, health, sanitation and recreation. 

To carry out our program of giving these direct 
services to the communities and neighborhoods of 
our city, it was necessary to obtain additional rev- 
enue. The half -cent sales tax and the utility tax 
were the means by which this money was raised. 

The justification for any tax can only be meas- 
ured by the services which our citizens receive for 
their tax dollar. It was my duty to put into effect 
a program which utilized these revenues and car- 
ried out the purposes for which they were pledged. 
I believe that the record of the administration and 
the City Council demonstrates that the tax dollar 
has been used to make this city a better place in 
which to live. 

The 1957 budget provides the appropriations to 
carry forward this great program of increased 
services relating to health, safety and cleanliness 
of our city; to public works and physical improve- 
ments; and other obligations required by law. 

The executive performance budget for 1957 calls 
for a total appropriation for corporate and non- 
corporate expenditures of $511,806,693 as com- 
pared to $565,694,712 for 1956— a reduction of 
$53,888,019. The 1957 corporate budget totals 
$156,082,060 as compared to $145,862,327 for 1956 
—an increase of $10,219,733. 



Allocation of Increase. 

The increase in the corporate fund is made up 
primarily by the addition of new policemen to the 
force; for salary and wage increases to all city 
employees; and for 292 new positions. The appro- 
priations are as follows: 

Additional policemen $2,880,950 

Salary and wage increases 6,149,636 

New positions 1,410,713 

for a total of $10,441,229. 

Real Estate Taxes. 

The 1957 budget recommendations for the cor- 
porate fund — that is, the housekeeping fund for 
the city, will not increase the real estate tax bill. 
We have followed this policy, although the city 
had the right to increase this taxing power. Fur- 
thermore, in the city's corporate fund the ratio of 
real estate tax to the total corporate fund revenue 
has again been reduced. The 1955 real estate taxes 
provided 41.48 percent of the corporate fund. In 
1956, this proportion was reduced to 36.41 per- 
cent, and we estimate that in 1957 real estate 
taxes will provide only 34 percent of the corporate 
fund. 

Salary and Wage Adjustments. 

Although many adjustments were made in 1956, 
still further salary and wage adjustments shown 
in the 1957 budget require $6,149,368. 

There are raises for more than 13,200 police and 
firemen. Most of them will receive $14.50 a month 
additional compensation. This is an important 
part of our program to give Chicago the finest 
Police and Fire departments in the nation. The 
1957 budget appropriation provides for the addi- 
tional money required to pay for a full year those 
who only served part of 1956. 

Salary increases are also given to all other em- 
ployees of the city, with the exception of cabinet 
members. 

Salary and wage rates for city employees should 
be competitive with other governments and with 
private industry. The salary increases represent 
another step in the city's program to provide ade- 
quate compensation for city employees in the face 
of higher living costs, and to retain skilled and 
experienced employees. It is also a part of our 
effort to recruit the best young men and women 
from our universities and communities into the 
service of the city. 

In modernizing our city government, there is 
always a continuing need for trained specialists if 
we are to carry out programs with maximum 
efficiency and economy. To do this, we must be 
able to offer salaries comparable to those offered 
by private industry. For example, the adjustments 
recognize the shortage of professional engineers — 
so vital to the city's construction program. All 
grades of engineers were increased $400 a year. 

Increases for the clerical, professional and other 
workers range from $120 annually for typists to 
$400 for professional engineers. 

Salary increases were also given to union em- 
ployees, in line with the city's policy of meeting 
prevailing union scales. 

The salary adjustments were not based on across- 
the-board percentage increases. Supervisory and 
administrative employees were granted mor*; than 
the average increase to bring their compensation 
in line with their responsibilities. Since most of

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 8, 1956 



the city's money goes for the payment of em- 
ployees, a comprehensive salary and wage plan is 
absolutely essential if we are to prepare the budget 
properly and treat city employees fairly. The 
Budget Director has been instructed to prepare 
such a plan and to have it ready long before the 
1958 budget is considered. He will seek the co- 
operation of other local governments as well as 
citizens' organizations. 

The city pay schedules are too numerous. There 
are too many poorly defined salary brackets and 
titles, too many in some cases and not provided 
for in other important spots. Funds have been 
placed in the budget to obtain whatever assistance 
is necessary in completing this important work. 

The table which follows gives a general break- 
down of the salary and wage increases in the 1957 
budget :

Expanded Police Force. 

When I assumed office I pledged to the people of 
Chicago that more police and firemen would be 
provided to patrol the neighborhoods and commu- 
nities of Chicago, to make the streets safer for 
our wives and children, and to protect our homes,. 

This pledge has been carried out by a net addi- 
tion of 1200 policemen and 588 firemen. 

With this expanded police force, citizens now 
see police on our streets, patroling the neighbor- 
hoods on foot, in three-wheelers, and in squad cars. 

A special crime task force of approximately 200 
men was set up and put into operation by Police 
Commissioner Timothy J. O'Connor on March 22 
of this year. The task force operates in watch 
shifts around the clock, and the units do not know 
their destination until they report for duty at the 
11th and State police building each day. 

This operation is aimed to prevent crime by 
apprehending persons who may be planning to 
commit crimes. 

During the period that this special crime task 
force has operated, they have made 686 arrests and 
served a total of 25,831 moving traffic violation 
summonses. This special unit made 177 arrests 
where persons were found either carrying a gun 
on their persons or a gun was found concealed in 
a car. There were 111 arrests involving the pos- 
session of a knife and other arrests for the pos- 
session of other types of weapons, such as bay- 
onets, blackjacks, brass knuckles, etc. Forty-nine 
persons were arrested for drunken driving. 

With the addition of the 1200 men to the police 
force, Chicago has had 43 fewer traffic deaths in 
the first ten months of 1956 than it had in 1955, 
while deaths in other American cities are on the 
increase. 

In 1956 the Fire Department of the city was 
seriously undermanned, so that equipment was go- 
ing to fires not adequately staffed. Now each piece 
of equipment has its full complement of men, pri- 
marily because we have added 588 firemen to the 
force. 

Three new modern ambulances were added to 
the Fire Department Service and a fourth will be 
added by the end of this year. Thus far the Fire 
Department Ambulances have answered 18,438 
emergency calls compared to 16,149 in a similar 
period last year. We can all be proud of this serv- 
ice. In the recent tragedy on the CTA elevated. 
Fire Department ambulances were present within 
two minutes after the first alarm, and 12 of them 
were on the scene within 15 minutes. 

To continue this program of greater protection 
for our citizens, the budget provides for the em- 
ployment of 800 more policemen, at a cost of 
$2,880,950. 

It costs a great deal of money to expand and im- 
prove our Police department, but I know that the 
people of Chicago agree with us that the constant 
improvement of our police protection should be 
one of our first considerations. 

New Positions. 

The new budget provides for 292 new positions 
in the corporate fund, besides the additional police- 
men, at a cost of $1,410,713. They include 98 em- 
ployees for the Bureau of Sanitation, which in- 
cludes a special unit of Sanitary Police for enforce- 
ment of city sanitary and cleanup regulations, at a 
cost of $471,533; 19 employees in the Department

of Aviation, for increased activity at Midway and 
O'Hare fields, at a cost of $126,226; and 22 em-

$103,260.

Financing the 1957 Budget. 



The overall 1957 budget appropriates $511,806,- 
693. Many sources of income contribute to this 
total. They are summarized as follows: 

From bond issues $169,459,000 

From property tax levies 131,482,000 

Vehicle taxes 23,802,000 

Water fund— current 38,049,000 

Motor fuel tax— from state.... 42,700,000 
Non-tax revenues of the 

Corporate Fund 87,711,000 

From Surplus 16,804,000 

Other 1,799,000 

Total $511,806,000 

Money from the sale of bonds will finance $86,- 
381,380 of general improvements and $42,000,000 
of waterworks plant such as mains, tunnels, and 
the filtration plant. Revenue bonds payable solely 
from earnings of the enterprises will finance $31,- 
700,000 of the Calumet Skyway Toll Bridge and 
$9,378,000 of parking facilities. The four bond 
funds total $169,459,380. 

The increased appropriations for the 1957 Cor- 
porate Fund will be financed by using $5,350,000 
from the surplus of 1956, plus the following in- 
crease in specific revenues : 

Utility tax $2,100,000 

Vehicle taxes 600,000 

Public utility compensation 900,000 

Building permits 300,000 

Airport earnings 390,000 

Court fines 400,000 

Motor fuel reimbursement 75,000 

Miscellaneous revenues 100,000 

Department of Streets and Sanitation. 

In 1956 we devoted much of the additional rev- 
enue from tax sources in expanding the equipment 
in operation of the Department of Streets and 
Sanitation. As a result Chicago is a cleaner city 
because the streets are being cleaned regularly and 
refuse is being collected more frequently. 

From the beginning of the year until October 
31st, more than 170,000 miles of our city's streets 
were cleaned, an increase of more than 77,000 miles 
over the previous year. 

Approximately 224,000 cubic yards of dirt was 
removed during this period, an increase of 66,000 
cubic yards over the same period in 1955. 

Streets are cleaned daily in the downtown area 
and the principal outlying areas. Other busy streets 
are cleaned weekly. In contrast to conditions a 
year and a half ago, when some residential streets 
had never been cleaned, now every residential street 
in the city is cleaned once every two to five weeks. 

Refuse collections now average once every 6.8 
days, an improvement over the previous year. Fifty 
new large capacity trucks, of the latest design, 
have been added to our force. From the beginning 
of the year to October 31st more than 3,800,000 
cubic yards of refuse was. collected. 

Abandoned buildings and unsightly shacks, which 
were eyesores in our communities, are being torn

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



November 8, 1956 



Cleaner Chicago, people in every neighborhood are 
becoming more responsible and conscious of the 
importance of cooperation of each householder and 
each citizen in keeping the city clean of litter. 
People are improving their homes — cleaning vacant 
lots and being more careful about discarding litter 
on the streets — because they know that keeping a 
city clean, like keeping a yard clean, is a matter 
of cooperative good housekeeping. 

Where it has been necessary there has been 
police enforcement of cleanup laws and regulations,. 
A special force of 25 police was created early this 
year and assigned to areas where this enforcement 
was needed. These police, plus the ward sanitation 
force, issued a total of 33,000 warning notices and 
7,500 penalty notices. 

Some 15,000 litter baskets have been placed on 
corners and on streets throughout the city. 

With new equipment — new manpower — and the 
spirit of cooperation between the people and the 
city forces — Chicago's streets and alleys are be- 
coming cleaner and cleaner to help preserve the 
vitality and appearance of the neighborhoods in 
which Chicago lives. 

At long last the City Hall has been cleaned and 
is now an attractive building, offering a good ex- 
ample to property owners everywhere. The main 
public library is also being cleaned and will again 
be one of the most beautiful buildings in Chicago. 

Building Department. 

The Building Department has contributed to pub- 
lic health and safety by the demolition of more 
unsafe buildings and stricter enforcement of the 
building laws. With the cooperation of the Police 
and Fire departments, we are continuing inspection 
of the overcrowded, cheap hotels where so many 
deaths occurred in early 1955. 

The new Housing Code will enable the Building 
Department to obtain stricter compliance with 
health and building standards, and will be a great 
step toward eliminating conditions which lead to 
the spread of blight. 

The Law Department, with the cooperation of 
the Building Department, has filed 28 receivership 
suits against landlords who have refused or failed 
to comply with building and health ordinances. 
This kind of action has caused many owners to 
rehabilitate their buildings. 

Traffic and Street Improvement. 

Another one of our main concerns has been the 
improvement of traffic and transportation in our 
city. This is one of the most basic methods by 
which our neighborhoods can be revitalized and 
maintained strong and vigorous. This kind of im- 
provement involves more than superhighways. It 
involves the increase and improvement of traffic 
circulation in our neighborhood business streets 
and between various parts of the city. 

Our program for 1957 will continue the pace we 
have set. In 1956, more than 63 miles of streets 
were resurfaced, and 560 miles of streets were re- 
paired. Many improvements in the design and 
construction of streets will be continued, such as 
channelizing the flow of cars, installing traffic signs 
and revamping intersections. 

Thirty-eight new neighborhood off-street-park- 
ing facilities will be constructed in the coming 
year as another major step easing congestion. In 
addition to the three large parking garages which 
were completed in 1956, 15 open, off-the-street lots 



were opened near business sections to give them 
new commercial life and vigor. 

A new type of bold and forward looking traffic 
improvement will be expanded in 1957 in the form 
of grade separations for heavily used intersections. 
A contract has already been advertised for this 
type of project at Ashland and Archer Avenues 
and many others are planned. 

Public Works. 

The coming year will be another period of great 
progress in our major public works, similar to 
1956. 

Construction of rapid transit facilities will con- 
tinue in Congress street in which a seven and one- 
half mile stretch was opened this year. This 100 
million dollar expressway, under construction since 
1949, now serves scores of thousands of our city's 
motorists and has reduced driving time to much 
of the west side. 

There will be much more expansion of our super- 
highway system comparable to the opening of 
Wacker Drive from Lake to a connection with 
Congress street. Construction will continue on the 
Northwest superhighway, in which three over- 
passes were completed, west of the loop, and four 
others begun. With the right of way acquired on 
the South Route expressway, and with construction 
begun, the acquisition of right of way for the South 
route, which we began in 1956, will be continued, 
as will construction of the Calumet Skyway. Has- 
tening the pace of acquisition and construction on 
this great south side route has resulted in 55 mil- 
lion dollars in construction contracts being let and 
the completion scheduled for 1958. 

We shall again take great strides in establishing 
Chicago as the paramount air center of the world. 

New taxiways will be built at O'Hare airfield 
such as the 8,000-foot runway which was opened 
this year. The other Chicago airfields also are 
being improved, with new runways at Meigs and 
repaving at Midway. 

O'Hare airfield now is part of our city by virtue 
of the annexation proceedings completed success- 
fully with the help of this Council. 

Much work will be continued on other aspects 
of our city. With one new incinerator now opened, 
the 720-ton Medill plant, work will begin on a 
second, larger plant on the southeast side of the 
city. 

The construction of the huge central district 
filtration plant, near Navy Pier, will continue from 
its auspicious start this year. Both the reservoir 
and six miles of tunnel are under way, and new 
water tunnels, and reservoirs are also under con- 
struction on the south side. 

The extremely important work of sewer exten- 
sion will continue. Seven miles were completed in 
1956. 

Much improvement was made during this year, 
also, in the expansion and modernization of our 
water system with 35 miles of large and small 
mains completed, as well as a new 30-million gal- 
lon reservoir and other mechanical improvements. 

With the passage of the new bond issue, our 
street lighting program will continue. More than 
700 miles of new street lighting have been already 
installed and this new bond issue will provide for 
many, many more miles. 

All activities in the fields of housing, neighbor- 
hood redevelopment, and community conservation

were speeded up during 1956 and will be much 
further accelerated in 1957. All City buildings and 
City properties need rehabilitation badly. We have 
taken steps to improve the City Hall in many ways. 
The Central Office Building has been occupied and 
is now being used by several City agencies. A 
start was made on the maintenance and repair 
of Navy Pier and still more funds are provided for 
that purpose in 1957. The park and recreation 
facilities under the jurisdiction of the City were 
expanded late in 1955 and still more in 1956. For 
1957 the season will be extended on the City's 
beaches by employing senior lifeguards and beach 
janitors for four months instead of three months. 
The salaries, of playground directors have been in- 
creased substantially in order to provide more 
adequate supervision of the playgrounds. 

Health Department. 

The people of Chicago can be proud of the Chi- 
cago Board of Health. A major crisis in public 
health was handled in the city through the emer- 
gency treatment for the prevention and treatment 
of polio. We must continue treatment of many of 
the polio victims, and for that purpose we have 
appropriated $85,000. 

Other increases in the corporate fund were for 
an increase in commodity costs due to higher 
prices, $303,261 ; for land acquisition primarily for 
O'Hare Field, $542,000; for increases in Work- 
men's Compensation claims required by State law, 
$130,000; and for redistricting wards of the city, 
$275,000. 

The Board of Election Commission's budget was 
decreased by $1,098,704, as there will be no major 
election in 1957. 

Economy and Savings. 

Many economies have been made in the past year 
and steps have been taken to produce still more 
in the year to come. 

Delays were being encountered in contracts and 
purchase orders. We have speeded up the time 
greatly. Furthermore consultants have been re- 
tained and are working to see if there are any 
duplications of work or any delays that can be 
remedied. 

During the coming year we will completely re- 
view the problem of truck hire with the considera- 
tion of substituting city purchase in lieu of truck 
hire and securing better supervision, economy, and 
efficiency. 

The whole Bureau of Aviation is. being reorgan- 
ized so that it will be able to handle adequately 
the increased activities at our three airports and 
to carry out much of the necessary engineering 
work which has been done by contract in the past. 
The Building Department is functioning far more 
effectively as evidenced both by its constructive 
activities and the increased revenues from inspec- 
tions. 

The budget itself has provided the basis for 
many economies. The expenditure of money has 
been controlled through quarterly allotments. The 
transfer of funds between appropriations has been 
studied carefully and no single transfer has been 
made until it was fully justified by the Department 
requesting it. The practice of spending appropria- 
tion balances near the end of the year rather than 
have them lapse is now under good control. 

Many financial economies have also been made. 
Bond sales have been carefully planned to prevent 
the accumulation of idle money. At the same time 



we have been obtaining the maximum amount of 
interest from funds which we could not spend im- 
mediately. We have made serious attempts to col- 
lect current bills due the City for a great variety 
of purposes. Again the budget itself has laid the 
basis for studying the work of every department 
and agency during the coming year. We feel, there- 
fore, that we have made progress in the reorgani- 
zation of some activities, that we have currently 
steps under way to bring about other savings and 
that we have laid the basis for intensive studies 
of further economies in 1957. 

The City Plan Commission, with its limited func- 
tions, and a staff not responsible to the administra- 
tion, has been reorganized through your approval 
of an ordinance setting up a Department of Plan- 
ning responsible to the Mayor and including the 
functions formerly assigned to the City Plan Com- 
mission. 

The handling of purchases and contracts has 
been greatly expedited and consultants are now 
working with the Department of Purchasing to 
further streamline its work. 

The work of the Department of Law has also 
been intensified. In order to permit the proper 
carrying out of its activities, the administration 
of the department has been streamlined and more 
adequate quarters are being provided by remodel- 
ing its offices in City Hall. Frequent staff meet- 
ings have been held to coordinate and expedite all 
activities. 

The Mayor's office, which is the central point of 
all the City's activities, has been strengthened in 
several activities. This budget being presented to 
you today is far superior to its predecessors. This 
budget is prepared in such a way that the public 
itself can readily see just what the City is doing 
in all its departments. It shows the kind of activi- 
ties being carried on and the units of work in each 
activity. We know, for instance, how many miles 
of streets are being swept by hand, how many 
miles are swept by machine and how much money 
is required to do the cleaning. The Office of the 
Commissioner of Investigation has been estab- 
lished. 

Office of Inquiry and Information. 

The Office of Inquiry and Information has ren- 
dered a new service to the people of the City of 
Chicago by getting definite answers to every in- 
quiry and complaint. During the first year of its 
operation, the Information Bureau on the first floor 
answered 222,496 inquiries, while 11,510 complaints 
were received and reported on. 

Commissions and Welfare. 

Our program to serve all the people of Chicago 
could not be fulfilled unless we expanded those 
services and activities that meet the personal and 
human problems dealing with the welfare of the 
people. 

In 1956, the Commission on Human Relations 
made real contributions in dealing with the most 
difficult question of racial relations. It has worked 
zealously to create an atmosphere of understanding 
and tolerance among our people. In 1957 they will 
expand their activities with a program to meet the 
problems of thousands of new workers and their 
families who come to Chicago each year. These 
newcomers need help in getting adjusted to metro- 
politan living. The budget provides an appropria- 
tion of $25,000 for this program of "on the spot" 
adjustments by trained personnel; to know the 



3420

location and numbers of these newcomers; and to 
provide a continuous flow of accurate information. 

The budget for next year provides an appropria- 
tion of $120,000 for the expansion of the Commis- 
sion on the Rehabilitation of Man. The purpose of 
this new commission is to rehabilitate those persons 
who can be assisted back to a normal life through 
medical and psychiatric help and brief treatment 
at a state-city treatment center. 

The Police Department Juvenile Unit and the 
many private, civic and social agencies are being 
aided in their programs to help youth by the 
Advisory Committee on Juvenile Welfare, and an 
appropriation of $15,000 for this commission is pro- 
posed in the new budget. 

The number of our elderly people is steadily in- 
creasing. To provide a program for them so that 
they may lead lives of activity and usefulness, we 
have appointed a Commission on Senior Citizens, 
composed of men and women who are experts in 
this field. An appropriation of $29,500 is recom- 
mended for this commission. 

The All Chicago Citizens Committee has several 
programs in preparation to tell the true story of 
Chicago and its people and to give support to our 
cultural and social institutions, and their activities. 

Conclitsion. 

This summary of the budget is just a brief out- 
line of the proposals for 1957. You will find that 
the new performance budget is complete with de- 
tailed information never before compiled. It gives 
a complete breakdown of the budget recommenda- 
tions and, of course, any further information you 
desire will be immediately forthcoming from the 
Budget Director. 

I am looking forward to your recommendations 
and criticism and suggestions so that when the 
City Council passes the budget, it will be a budget 
that truly serves the best interests of the city and 
all the people. 

The progress that we have made in 1956 could 
not have been accomplished without the hard work 
by department heads, who have put in many hours 
to better the services of our city. To them, and the 
thousands of city employees, I express my heart- 
felt thanks and appreciation. 

Much of the progress we have made in bettering 
city government could not have been achieved 
without the hard work and the good judgment of 
the City Council. Nothing has given me greater 
encouragement. 

We share a common goal of devoting ourselves 
to making our community and neighborhoods finer 
places in which to live. This is the "I Will" spirit 
carried out in day-by-day action — it is this pro- 
gram which will fulfill the hopes and the ambi- 
tions and the needs of our people. 

(Signed) Richard J. Daley, 

Mayor.

duties, provided that the reason for the absence

application for such leave shall be shown to the 
department head by such reasonable evidence as

The Committee on Local Industries, Streets and

Chicago, November 1, 1956. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Local Industries, Streets and 
Alleys begs leave to recommend that Your Honor- 
able Body DO NOT PASS the proposed order 
transmitted herewith (referred on October 17, 
1956) for approval of a plat of resubdivision of 
property at the southeast corner of S. Normal 
Boulevard and W. 61st Street, being approximately 
79 feet on S. Normal Boulevard and approximately 
75 feet on W. 61st Street. 

This recommendation was concurred in by 9 
members of the committee, with no dissenting

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Harry L. Sain,

COMMITTEE ON POLICE, FIRE, CIVIL SERVICE, SCHOOLS AND MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS. 



Board of Education Requested to Adopt Automobile- 
Driver-Training Program in City's High Schools. 

The Committee on Police, Fire, Civil Service, Schools 
and Municipal Institutions submitted a report recom- 
mending that the City Council adopt a proposed res- 
olution transmitted therewith (referred on September 
26, 1956), which reads as follows: 

Whereas, The employment of the automobile as 
a means of transportation and recreation has be- 
come almost universal in our community; and 

Whereas, It has been shown by studies in other 
localities that properly trained drivers are respon- 
sible for only about half as many accidents as im- 
properly or casually instructed drivers; and 

Whereas, It appears from studies made in the 
state of Delaware that savings in property damage 
resulting from a reduction in automobile accidents 
following a driver-training program, more than 
pays for the cost of such training; and 

Whereas, Mounting traffic fatalities and less se- 
rious accidents are a cause of grave concern to 
every community in the United States, including 
Chicago; and 

Whereas, In the City of Chicago only one public 
high school provides instruction in the operation 
of automobiles for students (Lane Technical High 
School) ; and 

Whereas, Young people of high school age are 
likely to learn to drive automobiles and it is de- 
sirable that they be properly instructed in such 
operation ; 



Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago herewith memorial- 
ize the Board of Education of Chicago to give 
serious consideration to the expansion of the pro- 
gram of automobile-driver training in the city's 
high schools, with a view to reducing fatalities and 
property damage through proper training of young 
people in the operation of automotive vehicles. 

On the motion of Alderman Bieszczat the commit- 
tee's recommendation was concurred in and said pro- 
posed resolution was adopted.

hibit Drinking of Alcoholic Liquor on Public

Schools and Municipal Institutions submitted the fol- 
lowing report, which was, on motion of Alderman

Chicago, October 31, 1956. 

To the President and. Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Police, Fire, Civil Service,

ted by Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor (re- 
ferred on October 17, 1956) for amendment of 
Section 193-1.2 of the Municipal Code of Chicago 
to prohibit the drinking of alcoholic liquors on the

Chairman. 

The following is the proposed ordinance recom- 
mended in the foregoing committee report: 

Whereas, The consumption of alcoholic liquor in 
public ways and in or about motor vehicles oper- 
ated or parked on public v/ays is fraught with 
great danger to the health, safety and welfare of 
the public and lacks the supervision that is at- 
tendant in the consumption of alcoholic liquor in 
duly licensed premises ; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago finds and determines that in order to have 
better control of the consumption and transporta- 
tion of alcoholic liquor upon the public ways of the 
City of Chicago, as well as to eliminate this ob- 



jectionable conduct, it is advisable that a more 
stringent penalty be provided for such unlawful 
act; now, therefore. 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. Chapter 193 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago is amended as follows : 

Section 193-1.2 is hereby amended to read as 
follows : 

"Section 193-1.2 (a) It shall be unlawful 
for any person to drink any alcoholic liquor 
as defined by law on any public way or in or 
about any motor vehicle upon a public way in 
the city. 

fb) It shall be unlawful for any person to 
transport, carry, possess or have any alcoholic 
liquor in or upon or about any motor vehicle 
upon any public way in the city except in the 
original package and with the seal unbroken. 

(c) Any person violating any provision of 
this section shall be fined not less than fifty 
dollars nor more than two hundred dollars, or 
shall be punished by imprisonment for a pe- 
riod of six months, or by both such fine and 
imprisonment." 

Section 2. This ordinance shall become effec- 
tive upon its passage and due publication.

men Petrone, DuBois, Zelezinski, Campbell, Bonk, 
Tourek, Ronan, Laskowski, Buckley, Simon and Sper- 
ling) reading as follows: 

Whereas, The American Legion is a veterans 
organization composed of over three million vet- 
erans of World Wars I, II, and Korea, and its 
Auxiliary composed of over one million women, 
devoting itself to the rehabilitation of the disabled 
comrades, and endeavoring to foster and perpetuate 
a one hundred per cent Americanism, as well as 
to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to 
community, state and nation, and to safeguard and 
transmit to posterity the principles of justice, free- 
dom and democracy; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has endeared itself 
to the veterans of World War H and Korea because 
of the hospitality extended to them while they were 
in the service of our country ; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago has not been the 
Host City to the National Convention of the Am- 
erican Legion for many years ; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago, being the ap- 
proximate geographic center as well as the pop- 
ulation center of our nation, is also considered the 
center of transportation, commerce and industry, 
and is well on its way to becoming the foremost 
city of America, with its modern improvements 
and its progressive attitudes; and 

Whereas, The Mayor of the City of Chicago, 
Honorable Richard J. Daley, and the Governor of 
the State of Illinois, Honorable William G. Strat- 
ton, already have formally invited the National 
Convention of the American Legion as guests in 
1958; now, therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That the Mayor of the City of 
Chicago appoint a committee of outstanding citi- 
zens to assist in furthering this worthwhile enter- 
prise culminating in successfully bringing the 1958 
National Convention of the American Legion to the 
City of Chicago. 

On motion of Alderman Petrone said proposed res- 
olution was adopted.

Re: Release of a Portion of Previously 
Appropriated Funds for Construction of 
Parking Facilities. 

Gentlemen — In the Annual Appropriation Ordi- 
nance of the City of Chicago for the year 1956, the 
City Council appropriated the sum of $9,500,000 
under the Chicago Parking Facility Construction 
Fund, Code 6239, (C.J.P. 12-12-55, page 1868) for 
the construction of certain Parking Facilities in the 
City of Chicago. The afore-mentioned appropriation 
is a "stringed" appropriation. 

General Memorandum No. 117 dated June 21, 
1955 and issued by the Purchasing Agent, City of 
Chicago, to all using departments states that ef- 
fective July 1, 1955 no requisition will be acted 
upon unless there is contained in the requisition 
satisfactory evidence of release of stringed appro- 
priation where purchases are to be made from funds 
that are to be expended upon Council Authority. 

The Department of Public Works wishes to ex- 
pedite the construction of the parking facilities 
included in the A-4 Project with all possible speed. 
The cost of these facilities, including engineering 
and miscellaneous work appurtenant thereto, ex- 
clusive of the cost of land, is estimated to be 
$4,632,000.00. 

Authorization is, therefore, requested to expend 
$4,632,000.00 from the previously appropriated sum 
of $9,500,000 under Code Account No. 6239 for 
the purposes set forth in the Annual Appropriation 
Ordinance of the City of Chicago for the year 1956. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) George DeMent, 
Commissioner of Public Works.
